sports nut

Sam has become a sports fanatic in the last several months. It was like someone flicked a switch and the kid cannot get enough sports. He hated that the baseball playoff games went on past his bedtime and he made Joe promise to leave him a note letting him know who won their respective games. Every night Sam asks Joe, "who's on tonight?" He doesn't care if it's baseball, football, hockey, or basketball. Any game is fair game. He even sets the dvr to record games he is unable to watch due to unfair bedtimes and school. And he will pester Joe ad nauseam with sports related questions. "Who played in the Superbowl in 1993?" "Who won the most World Series?" "Which team is the oldest of all the sports?" "What is this team's or that team's win/loss record? and what was it last year?" The questions go on and on and on and on. I know Joe always hoped his kids would share his love of sports. Sam surpasses even Joe in his desire to know everything about sports. I look forward to taking him to Cooperstown someday soon.

Sam has his favorite teams. The Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and the Bruins are, of course number one, but he does have others that rank pretty high on the list. Wins and losses mean nothing to Sam in terms of determining who his favorites are. Nope, it's all about the mascot. Any team with an animal is a winner in Sam's book. The Rays, Diamondbacks, Tigers, Cardinals are all on the list. And then anything a little bit quirky also peaks his interest. If you know Sam at all then his favorite of favorites should be easy to figure out. None other than the Buffalo Bills!
